J.T. Brown continues to use his Fortnite skill for good.

The Minnesota Wild forward teamed up with pro gamer CLG Marksman to finish sixth at the Fortnite Pro-Am on Friday, winning a $75,000 prize to be donated to the charity of their choice.

Brown is an avid gamer who played 24 consecutive hours on Twitch last year and raised more than $1,300 for Hockey Is For Everyone. 

After a self-described rough Game 3, Brown/Marksman registered 12 eliminations and a Victory Royale to clinch their finish in Game 4. Brown posted the highlights to Instagram and also shared his elation at the result after the event.

Brown/Marksman was one of the 50 tandems vying for the $3 million charity prize, which went to record producer RL Grime and his partner Airwaks. The pro-am was one of the highlights of the Fortnite World Cup Finals, a three-day event at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York that attracted the100 best players from around the globe.
